I 'm about to sign up for some shared hosting space. My apps are going to be created with the version 3.5 SP1 of the .net framework. I'm not sure what version asp.net I have, it's the one that comes with VS 2008. The sites that are going to be on the
hosting space are my personal projects for my portfolio.
The hosting company offers both Server 2003 and 2008. They said that my apps would run on both of them fine. It's a shared hosting plan, so I have to use their interface to manage the sites. I want to later feature AJAX on some of the sites as well. I
may eventually use WCF for some of the sites. I'm assuming this will work on both 2003 and 2008. I will follow up with them on this to be sure.
I am wondering if I should choose 2008 over 2003. I am thinking about going with 2008. I'm guessing that for what I'm doing and since I can't access the Server environment or IIS directly that it really doesn't matter too much.
Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on this?

as for you vs 2008 and sql server 2008 is the best option. I thinks they own this combination .
there is .net 3.5 in vs 2008
as I am working now a days.

Your application will work with both Windows servers, but my advice is to get 2008 if you can choose.

If you had to pay extra I wouldn't bother, otherwise, you want the current version wherever possible.

Thanks for the responses. It was free to go with Server 2008, so that is what I chose.
